Bravo World Press Photo Award Winners

Bravo to the award winners in this year's World Press Photo Competition.  Not only are the images strong photographically and artistically, but they are also heavy with sentiment.  I am impressed with the numbers of award winners who had black and white images, especially in this sometimes oversaturated colorful world.  The World Press Photo jury made the right call last year when they made the manipulation rules stricter and the quality of the work speaks for  itself in the winners categories.. I follow many of these photographers daily on Instagram, and they have integrity in their documentary work.  The NYTimes has a nice selection here.  The Atlantic also has a nice selection here.  I would spend the time looking at the World Press site itself for the complete winner selections .  I am putting a few of my favorites here as well...
